I have lost count of the times I've seen TV shows and movies use the notion that women are actually flattered by wolf whistles and catcalls as a plot point. While I'm not going to deny that there must be a few women who would actually feel this way it's by no means the way most women feel when this happens to them but you certainly wouldn't know that based on sitcoms etc. If nothing else happens in Hollywood I'd really like to see a little more attention being paid to how most women really feel when they are rated and judged by random strangers on the street.
